Good evening! I can help you out with your legal question tonight.
It depends on the amount of the settlement. Do you know the amount of the settlement?
What is the amount?
I cannot disclose it.
Is it over $5,000?
Is it under $100,000
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX would make the payment to the estate of the deceased. A probate would need to be opened and then it will be distributed to the heirs pursuant to the will.
If there was no will, the money wold be put in the probate, and then it would be split according to state statute.
So, it will go to cover his debt?
Yes it will.
Ok, thank you.
You are very welcome!
Good luck and please leave me feedback so I can continue to help others. Have a great night.
